Alan Smith (MSc Geoenvironmental engineering)

I chose to return to postgraduate study in order to get an edge in the job market. Geoenvironmental engineering is a growing field and I feel this type of specialist MSc will really enhance my career prospects. The course itself is very diverse and students benefit, in particular, from the School’s strong network of contacts in industry. I was also fortunate enough to secure funding for my postgraduate study from the EPSRC.

Matt Chapman

I have found that taking the Electrical Energy Systems MSc has given me a much greater appreciation of engineering fundamentals in the wider context of the power industry. I believe that the skills obtained from undertaking this course has set me up perfectly for a career involving power systems networks, renewable energy, and even the aerospace industry. On top of this, it has probably been my most enjoyable year at university.
